My two daughters, ages 7 and 12, and my husband and I all take classes at URMA. My eldest daughter started about five years ago, and the rest of us joined about two years ago. The owners are top-notch instructors, and the school is very family-friendly, which I love! My girls have flourished here. They are not only learning to defend themselves but they are learning important life lessons about responsibility, discipline, and respect. The owners are supportive and nurturing and show genuine interest in their student’s and families’ lives. They also have themed summer camps, which are awesome and a great value. My kids love them!” – Kassandra K.
